Wrapped Emotions 2

Wrapped Emotions button

This weeks WE project had us looking at our comfort zone public places from a different viewpoint. This had me stumped at first. I don't go a whole lot of places. I thought about the places that I frequent the most and it is WalMart and church. Now, you can't normally drag me into Walmart unless I'm there to work (I stock shelves for Old Dutch, and Tombstone, along with L.D., on weekends.) I think I probably spend $20 a month in that store. To go there when I don't have to, I don't think so. So that left church.




Gotta say, this felt a little like cheating. Melody specifically said-

A public place, not your living room or Aunt Bessie's kitchen.

This was technically a public place. But I am probably as comfortable there as I would be in Aunt Bessie's kitchen. Nobody thought twice went I went up to the front of the auditorium, bent down on the floor with my camera and took some pictures. I took a couple of shots with different viewpoints. Here's what I came up with.



























*Edited so Melody won't lose what is left of her sanity* To be honest, I am not 100% sure what is the part in color. I think it is someone's foot in the back of the auditorium. I edited the photo to be mostly b&w with the only the center focused, and the very end in color because the shot from under the chairs reminded me of a tunnel. Church---light at the end of the tunnel---it seemed appropriate. To see the original photo, untouched click here. Again, I put WAY too much thought into stuff like this!

Ok, De! Love it. However, you can't leave me hanging. I see that your vantage point was on the floor looking underneath the chairs, right? But you have to tell me what I am seeing...the small point of color. I even clicked for the large version...I'm mesmerized. You're going to drive an already-close-to-it woman insane. :)

I'm glad you didn't go lie in the floor of Walmart. Yuck!

Thanks for playing again this week, and you did not cheat.

Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me but in the center of the color, the shape sure looks like a cross to me. And sometimes I can be in church and treat the message of the cross as the furthest thing in the world. Or, when the world goes all black and white, the cross gives my world color. You sure gave me a lot to think on. This was breathtaking!

Great job at thinking creativity. I really like this and how you edited it for meaning. Very nice!

I like the way you think! The picture on the blog is great, but I think the full sized picture is very powerful, too. I can almost feel like I'm right there on the floor.

Great job! I love how you pulled the meaning out and edited it! I was so intrigued when I first saw it, I had to keep looking until I figured it out.

I love this shot! I just kept staring at it. I couldn't tell what it was at first, but my eyes liked it.
